Champions League: Frank Lampard gives verdict on Ronaldo, Messi
Chelsea legend, Frank Lampard has stated that Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo is better than Barcelona ace, Lionel Messi, at the moment.
Lampard said this following Real Madrid’s 2-1 victory over Bayern Munich in Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final first leg clash at the Allianz Arena.
The ex-midfield maestro believes only Messi can be compared to Ronaldo, but says not even the Argentine captain can match his fierce rival’s current form.
“Ronaldo has reinvented his game into his 30s,” Lampard told BT Sport.
“He’s become almost an out-and-out goal striker in terms of the way he plays.
It’s difficult to compare anyone, obviously Lionel Messi.
“But in terms of what he’s actually done, in terms of actual numbers, he’s clear at the minute without a doubt.”
Ronaldo currently has 20 goals more than Messi in the Champions League.
Both players have broken countless goal scoring records in the La Liga.
